Our Summer One Act Play Festivalsgive, for the most part, local playwrights a chance to see their creative efforts performed on stage in front of an audience. These Festivals also allow first time actors and more experienced actors to combine their talents in actual live theater.
The audiences get to see never-before-seen plays that may go on to other theaters and audiences. So, it's a win-win for everyone!
